Want to know where to park, what lift to ski when, where are the best glades, and where to eat lunch? This is information ski areas themselves won't tell you, but we think are critical to maximizing your on-mountain experience.

    Introduction

    Southington (not really a mountain) is your typical suburban ski hill. The convenient location is the selling point. If location is not your top priority, you are better off driving a bit further to Mohawk or just heading north.

    • Beginner

    Dom's Way is it.

    • Intermediate

    Laurel or Boomerand to Avalanche are intermediate options. Steeplechase to Thunderbolt will give you a bit more fun.

    • Advanced

    Not here. Tester will give you a bit more difficult turn or two.

    • Tree Skiing / Glades

    Lifts

    As is typical of a hill this size, the lifts are slow but at least the rides are short.
